Hello Everyone ~ I played with some designer series paper for my Garden Lane Designer Series Paper ~ Clean and Simple creation today.
I so enjoyed my relaxing day yesterday. I vacuumed the house and made my card for today. Then I played cards at the Pavilion. They play a game called Hand and Foot. I had never played this before and it is easy to learn. Even thought we lost by 750 points it was still fun. They only play once a month so I have a cheat sheet to help me remember all the rules. Later that evening I went to dinner at the Pavilion. It was Summer Soups and Salads night. Kathryn does a fabulous job with her dinners!
Today I am sharing another card using the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper. This is number 7 using this paper. If you did not see the first one, here is where you will find my Stampin’ Up Garden Lane Designer Series Paper Week first post. This paper is monochromatic with lots of different greens. It is perfect for combining with any other color or image you have in your stash. The patterns are not all leaves so you do not have to use just flowers with it. A couple of my ideas used just the paper with a sentiment, another combined it with a stamped image. I even used it with the cow set and made a fancy fold card. There is so much you can do with this paper. If you would like to see each of my posts using this paper, use the Search bar on the right and type in Garden Lane dsp. It will bring up all the ideas I have used this paper with.
For today’s card, I used the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this sketch!
I used a piece of the paper at the bottom of the card. This is a great layout to use if you have 1 pattern that is not easy to work with. I cut a 1 1/2″ x 4″ strip for my card panel. This was to be used at the bottom of the panel. I set the paper on the panel so I could see where to stamp my sentiment. The designer series paper had a leaf pattern in Mossy Meadow so I use that color for my sentiment. After I had my sentiment stamped, I used the Layering Leaves embossing folder to emboss the panel. This panel was added to my Mossy Meadow card base using Tear & Tape. The designer series paper was added at the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Tear & Tape also. I always use Tear & Tape when embossing is involved to make sure I get a good hold. I cut 2 strips of Mossy Meadow card stock and attached them to the left hand side of the Whisper White panel. My card had all the elements of the sketch! Here is my completed Garden Lane Designer Series Paper ~ Clean and Simple!
